Photography and the American Civil War
May 28, 2013 §
The Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art in New York has an ongoing exhibition of more than two hundred photographs from the American Civil War, including a number of medical photographs.
In the video above curator Jeff L. Rosenheim talks about some of the highlights of the exhibition.
You can see 51 of the photographs on the MET website here, and 6 medical photographs here. CBS has made an interesting report on the exhibition.
